Not only did we have the return of Wooden Wand earlier, but Mac DeMarco has also announced his first full-length album since 2014’s Salad Days. Titled This Old Dog, he has shared two songs from it, the sweetly bucolic title track, and the jauntier, acoustic psych-pop of My Old Man.
Both bode well for the new record, which he describes thus, “the majority of this album is acoustic guitar, synthesizer, some drum machine, and one song is electric guitar. So this is a new thing for me. This is my acoustic album, but it’s not really an acoustic album at all. That’s just what it feels like, mostly. I’m Italian, so I guess this is an Italian rock record.”
This Old Dog is out on the 5th May via Captured Tracks.
